Smiling in the rain: The Saturdays star Mollie King was beaming despite wearing tiny hotpants in the wet and chilly summer weather as she left Manchester's Lowry Hotel today
It's been raining today in many parts of Britain, not least up north as the UK's wonderful summer continues - but The Saturdays star Mollie King seems to take the sunshine with her wherever she goes.
She and the girls were pictured leaving Manchester's Lowry Hotel today in biting wind and rain - but despite the inclement weather, Mollie brightened up the day with her sunny smile - and by baring her pins despite the chill.
The blonde beauty was wearing tiny black hotpants and smiling broadly as bandmates Una Healy and Vanessa White covered up in jeans and grimaced in the weather alongside her.
Summer in the city: Mollie (L) was still grinning as her bandmates Una Healy (C) and Vanessa White (R) grimaced in the weather despite wearing jeans
Stand by me: Rochelle Wiseman had also covered up in Manchester with a brilliant 'Kate Mouse' T-shirt with jeans and jacket, with Frankie Sandford in tight trousers and a blazer
Homeward bound: Una had a smile on her face once she was in the warm car ready for the journey home
Good natured Mollie appears to be cheerful whatever the situation too.
Constantly on the road right now, the girls had been filming with the BBC today in Manchester and were heading back down south tonight.
But Mollie wrote tonight: 'Singing musical songs on the bus home from Manchester!!! The best by FAR starlight express!!!!!!!!'
Just popping out: Una and the girls played a gig supporting Boyzone in South Queensferry, Scotland, last night, before filming for the BBC in Manchester today
On song: Rochelle (L) was wearing a spiked bra top for the show in the grounds of a stately home, while Vanessa was in shorts and a leather jacket
Rochelle also tweeted that she'd had fun in Manchester, writing: 'Thanks to everyone waiting outside in Manchester, nice to see you all xx'
The girls had been up in Scotland last night, supporting Boyzone at their open air gig at Hopetoun House stately home in South Queensferry.
They had donned their more usual skimpy outfits for the show, with Rochelle wearing a daring spike-studded bra top and Una almost falling out of her tight pink bustier.
Pout and about: Una and the girls have been on the road promoting their new single All Fired Up
Vanessa meanwhile was wearing turquoise cut-offs and an orange and pink tie-dye top - though she kept warm in a black leather jacket.
Meanwhile, the video for the girl group's forthcoming single All Fired Up will be premiered on their official website on Tuesday.
There's a 30-second teaser of the video, featuring behind the scenes footage, currently on the site.
The five bandmates look stunning in a variety of different outfits, striking sultry poses.
